Volvo has issued a recall for certain models due to a fire hazard, according to several news outlets.
The news agencies have revealed that all 2012 S60 and XC60 vehicles manufactured by Volvo and equipped with an incorrect mixture of over-application and underbody coating that could stiffen certain areas of the vehicles, which could then penetrate the fuel lines and lead to a fuel leakage. This issue, according to the press release from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration could lead to a fire.
The firm has confirmed that there are 2,742 units affected by this problem that could pose a serious threat to several drivers and passenger and because of that fact the federal agency has urged drivers to keep from driving these vehicles until they were completely repaired.
As a Seattle car accident lawyer, I encourage you to check your vehicles for the recalled models immediately. I’ve witnessed several similar recalls in the past and I’m well aware of the severe harm that can be caused by a recalled and faulty vehicle. I understand the carmaker is working hard to notify all recalled vehicle owners and hope they are successful in repairing all units before any accidents are reported.
